Happy Painted Neon Socks Day! It’s been a hot minute since I made an appearance on the blog and I promise that was temporary! I have been so crazy busy lately and I am now back in the groove of things! It’s kinda funny how life can get so overwhelming, but in a good way! Check out this NEON DUCK TAPE bag I made it would go perfect with these socks!
I have this “SLIGHT” obsession with socks. Anytime I go into a store and I run across socks with prints I go nuts. I am not sure why because you will rarely find me wearing tennis shoes. I am a Birkenstock kinda gal so the sock things is kinda odd. Yes, I have a drawer full of neon, colorful, printed, patterned and anything else you can think of socks. Which brings me to THIS post. I found this pack of socks at……Michaels! Yes, Michaels. I was kinda shocked at first but I can’t lie my insides kinda had a party inside when I saw them. I immediately grabbed one of each color as fast as I could. I am really proud of myself that I didn’t grab 3 of each color, seriously! I knew I wanted to jazz them up but I wasn’t sure how.
These pretty babies
stayed in my studio for a hot minute… ok they got lost in my studio but when I finally ran across them my insides had a party all over again. That day I was into my Tulip Dimensional paint so the Universe answered my design question for me. I realized this was something anyone can do, especially kids. Let’s face it – kids love to create! Adults do too! Let’s get started so I can show you how to enhance your socks in 10 minutes!

I could tell you this project is super hard but I would be lying. It’s actually super easy! I wanted to create very subtle geometric designs on my socks so I only did the top part of them…. They turned out fabulous and unique. Every time I wear them I get stopped…well not really BUT I have had a few people ask me where I got them. Remember, I am a Birkenstock chica so you won’t really find me wearing socks!
On a whole other note my better half signed me up for a tennis league. Yes. A tennis league. I am not sure why I am telling you this but I guess this will be the perfect opportunity to show off all of my snazzy socks. I am so glad she has more faith in me than my socks do, haha! I am however super stoked about all the tennis clothes I will be wearing. I guess if I don’t play that good the least I could do is look cute on the court right… Stay tuned I will keep you updated, or I will NEVER mention this again. #fml
I kinda fell in love with each pair but I absolutely love the pink with black and white stripes. Leave a comment in the comment section telling me which pair is YOUR favorite.
